Research & Policy

The University of Missouri dedicates a fully staffed research office to fostering original discovery, creativity, innovation and scholarship at Mizzou.

MU Office of Research, Graduate Studies and Economic Development

In the fall of 2014, the Office of Research expanded to include the Graduate School and the Office of Economic Development.  Several different areas that relate to Economic Development now report to the Associate Vice Chancellor and Vice Provost, Steve Wyatt.  The strategy is focused on building strategic collaborations with business for the purpose of growing research and service contracts; enhancing internships, experiential learning opportunities and job placements; developing long-term philanthropy collaborations; exploring collaborations for new funding opportunities; and accelerating entrepreneurship and commercialization.  This includes not only local and regional partnerships, but also expanding MU’s presence and participation in the urban areas within the state.
